Can you tell me if National Defensive Driving is a certified driver training school in Arizona?
Although National Defensive Driving is listed on our list of driving schools in your area, we are unable to say with certainty as to whether they are currently certified to teach driver training courses in Arizona.

You will need to contact the Arizona DMV or a state-approved driving school like National Defensive Driving to find out. Some states do allow parent-taught driving, but many states do not.
